How many calories are in bread?

Bread is not a high-calorie food. An average slice of bread contains 80 calories but the calories really start to add up when bread is topped with lots of butter, margarine, peanut butter or mayonnaise. If you want to control your weight, stick to jam, low fat spreads, cottage cheese, plain yoghurt or eat bread on its own.

What to do with days-old bread?

You can slice it and grill it to make bruschetta, cut it up to make bread pudding, croutons, bread salad or stuffing. You can also make bread crumbs and use it as stuffing and thickeners in soups and dips.

How can you keep breads’ freshness longer?

Seal the pack with its unique G-lock device. After getting the slices you need, simply re-seal the pack with G-lock, this prevents air from drying out the bread.
Save the top end slice of the loaf. Use it to cover the rest of the loaf to retain softness and moistness.
Keep bread in a cool, dry, and dark place. Placing it under direct sunlight for a long period of time may cause the bread to moisten and lead to premature molding. Also, avoid storing bread near hot areas such as the top of refrigerators, gas stoves, etc.
Bread easily absorbs odors. Keep it away from items that emit strong odors such as onions, detergents and insecticides.
Make sure your hands are clean. Touching bread with unclean hands can cause premature molding.
You may store remaining bread in the refrigerator to prolong its set shelf life. Then reheat in toaster for 3 to 5 minutes.

Is skipping breakfast a good way to lose weight?

Eating a healthy high carbohydrate breakfast based on bread or cereals improves your energy levels and makes you less likely to crave for mid-morning snack or a chocolate bar.
